Overview

We are fortunate to have some of the oldest plantings in the Yarra Valley dating back to 1971, with varieties and sites that are genuinely interesting and worthy of release as single vineyard wines. The Chardonnay is minerally and lean, citrus like fruit with hazelnut undertones. Long flavoured palate with texture.

Expert Reviews

"Sophisticated with a clean, pure chardonnay fruit nose laced with spice and bright citrusy characters. The well-structured, complex palate has a hint of mineral acidity and a long, savoury finish."

Jeff Collerson, Daily Telegraph, (AUG/2012)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
